Balloons: More Than Just Hot Air

Is there anything that makes a party more spectacular than balloons? The answer is no. No, there isn't. And as the saying goes, the more the merrier; so what better way is there to buy them than at a bulk wholesale balloon supplier.

1. Types Of Balloons

Although the first balloon was created by Professor Michael Faraday in 1824 when he sealed two pieces of rubber together; modern balloons have two main types, latex and foil. Latex balloons are typically ten to thirty centimeters and unlike their rubber predecessors, promote rainforest conservation. Latex harvesting discourages deforestation because it allows for the tree to remain intact. A single tree can produce latex for up to forty years. Foil balloons are silver and metalized and were first created in 1970's to be used by the New York Ballet. They are commonly filled with helium, but it is not necessary for them to be an essential part of any party theme.

2. Why Buy From A Wholesale Balloon Supplier

When you buy wholesale, you are given the opportunity to remove the middle man and thus remove the commercial retailer markup price. Studies have shown that seventy-one percent of people enjoy celebrating their birthday no matter how old or young they may be. However, party decor doesn't have to be a costly experience. Although helium filled balloons float, they typically only last for roughly twelve to twenty hours, whereas air filled balloons though they lack the ability to float, will last for several weeks allowing you to get much more bang for your buck, so to speak.

3. A Few Decor Ideas

If creativity isn't your strong suit here are a few ideas to get you started. Balloon bouquets make a beautiful and unique way to show your appreciation for that special someone. Or alternatively, if you're looking for a more commercial use, inflate foil letters advertising a sale and hang them from the ceiling for an eye-catching advertisement that will go the distance.
Whether you're a stay at home mom looking to spice up your next class party, or a small business owner just getting off the ground, a wholesale balloon supplier is the place to go.
